A month before Israel’s general elections, Benjamin Netanyau’s Likud party seems to be tied in a neck-and-neck race with Yitzhak Herzog and Tzipi Livni’s Jewish Camp party. What was initially thought to be a snoozy campaign is turning out to be a fascinating electoral exercise, which is redrawing the contours of Israel’s political map, raising serious questions about Netanyahu’s legendary political savvy and may even end his rule as Israel’s second-longest serving prime minister.
To discuss the campaign and its impact on Israel’s national security agenda, please join us for a briefing call with Amir Tibon, the diplomatic correspondent of Walla, Israel’s most popular news site, on Tuesday, February 17, at 2:00 PM EST.
Amir Tibon, one of Israel’s leading political journalists. He is the author and co-author of two recent New Republic stories on John Kerry’s Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative (here and here). Before joining Walla, Tibon was an investigative producer for Israeli Channel Two’s “Uvda” (Israel’s “Sixty Minutes”) and for Channel Ten’s news show.
The call will take place on Tuesday, February 17th, at 2:00 PM Eastern Time.
To join the call dial 951-797-1058 and enter passcode 147414. Then please record your name clearly.
